Well you could do host only networking and put a proxy on the host to proxy requests from the guest. You could also use bridged networking placing the guest on the same subnet and network as the host. Additionally with NAT networking you can go out but not come back. i.e. if guest network is 10.10.10.x and host network is 192.168.100.x I can access 192.168.100.x from the guest network but cannot access the guest network from the host network. So with this in mind, if you had a DNS server on the host network for instance typing a host DNS name into the guest browser would connect you to the host on the VM host network.
